Whole 30 Report Week 4
Thursday, June 09, 2016
Totally in the home stretch. I'm excited about finishing and start incorporating foods back into my diet, but I'm also a little nervous about it too. I'm feeling really good right now. I don't want to do anything that will screw that up. I haven't felt bloated in almost a month. My tummy is flatter and I've lost that undeserving muffin top. My sleep is deeper. Instead of waking up and just laying there when my alarm goes off or shuffling around in a sleepy daze until I get my coffee, I am ready to wake up. No snooze button abuse. My hair feels and looks healthier too.
This past weekend was a breeze to get through. I didn't feel like I was missing out on anything. Even when I went to a family birthday party and ate an awesome fruit salad with coconut flakes, walnuts and almond butter while everyone else ate pizza and chips and dip. I thought to myself, "That would make me feel so sick." This weekend may be a bit more of a challenge, because my other half is out of town. During this process it has been easier knowing someone else is in the same boat and supporting you. We're still in the same boat, but he'll be 100's of miles away. I've already planned on going to see a band, trail run, a hike with the dog and lots of cleaning to fill the time.
Speaking of my other half. He is amazing. He has lost somewhere around 30lbs!!!! He went to the doctor for a check up and his blood pressure was 109/69. He was able to stop taking one of his medications, and will probably stop taking the other one soon. I feel so cheezy talking about how my hair feels healthier compared to what he has accomplished. For him it's not about seeing a number on the scale, fitting into a certain size of pants, or even how he looks in the mirror. His goal was to gain control of his health so he can continue living a better quality of life.
